Learning for Sustainability in Falkirk

Exciting Partnership with Social Enterprise Academy


Social Enterprise Academy Scotland is a social enterprise organisation which “enables every young person to step up, realise their potential, and create the change they want to see in the world.”

Practitioners and senior leaders in Falkirk Children’s Services can get more information here and can also access professional learning offered in collaboration with Social Enterprise Academy (SEA) via CPD Manager.

Practitioners in some Falkirk schools have already signed up for support from SEA and will take part in our very first Falkirk SEA Dragon’s Den event on 4th November 2022 at Larbert High School. This event provides an opportunity for pupils to pitch a social enterprise idea to a panel of dragons in the hope of winning seed funding to support the growth of their social enterprise idea. These events can be incredibly inspiring for young people, to meet and network with likeminded peers, but also to engage in something they are truly passionate about and to have meaningful social or environmental impact.

SEA deliver pupil workshops to help school groups develop their enterprising ideas in preparation for the Dragon’s Den. The workshops are delivered by experienced facilitators, who are either social entrepreneurs in their own right, or have experience working within social enterprises. At this stage, the groups are expected to pitch their social enterprise ideas – meaning there is no need to have their social enterprise operational or established before the event. This support is all free to schools because it is fully funded by the Scottish Government and you can watch the promo video here from a recent Dragons’ Den in Glasgow.
